Mona & Dante
Posted by Gordon Smith

Nina asked me this afternoon why I hadn't blogged about cheese in awhile, and the answer is ... I don't know. I have been eating cheese, but just not blogging it. So on the way home from work I made a quick detour to Whole Foods, looking for something new and different. I found two cheeses from the Wisconsin Sheep Dairy Cooperative, which is comprised of farms in northern Wisconsin, very near my home town of Osseo.

Dante is a Manchego-style cheese, though slightly more grassy and less oily than an aged Manchego. The cheese I brought home, however, was Mona. Mona is a blend of sheep's milk and cow's milk, which makes it creamier and milder than Dante. The texture is dense, but slightly crumbly. These are interesting cheeses that are not widely distributed, though you can buy them online through the WSDC website.
